6:17. olga is in for howard bernstein as a yellow alert day and we're going to start seeing really heavy rain around lunch time. >> yes in a couple hours things will be dramatically different than what folks are waking up to and starting out with. it might seem a little bit tame as you go out this morning a few rain drops, a couple wet
6:18 am
roadways but things could become a little bit more heavy and steady as the day wears on. right now with our doppler radar there's bands of heavy rain but so far its stayed north of the metro area mainly up into pennsylvania, panhandle of maryland, seeing steady rain for oakland, bedford, hagerstown that area but things will shift as we head into the afternoon and yes, we could see some gusty winds as well as these steadier rains and storms move on through. so far so good around the beltway and in fact occasionally we get a little bit of a break from the rainfall and then another wave comes right back through and this is the type of on and off activity we're going to see. the sun is now up officially sunrise at 6:19 and we'll see our skies cloudy all day long and in fact we are under a yellow alert and that's because of the showers and the steady thunderstorms expected into the afternoon. overall though, the temperatures have been remaining steady. we've been sitting at 74 degrees for the last several hours and the humidity is quite
6:19 am
high as well and winds out of the southeast still pumping that moisture in. the day planner will hold off on the stormy weather until about the noon time hour but certainly by the time we get to 12 and beyond, the skies will darken a bit and we'll see some of those gusty winds and heavier cells move on through. so far our temperatures have been mild as you step out this morning you'll find it's really quite comfortable, temperatures en the upper 60s to near 70 degrees and satellite and radar combined you can see just how large this system is. all of this is ahead of a cold front which will be passing through tonight and giving us relief to the mugginess for tomorrow. i stopped our future cast at 12 noon and that's when i think is our best opportunity for some of the first bands of the heavy steady downpours to move on through and notice how it's lining up along i95 basically between the northern panhandle of maryland and down into the d.c. metro. again, areas that are prone to flooding could see localized flooding by later on this afternoon and then off and on
6:20 am
showers again through mid afternoon, your drive time home is hit or miss. some of us will have steady pockets of rain. others will have light rain but definitely be a slick ride home by about the 5:00, 6:00 hour and then steady thunderstorms even tonight as you go to bed. things improve though overnight, partial clear, partly cloudy skies early on wednesday morning but that wind shift for wednesday definitely going to be worth it when we secure out the humidity at last. so our highs today will stay well below average only near 80 degrees inside the beltway upper 70s elsewhere and tonight, still a little muggy and takes awhile for front to move through but you can see the coolest air toward oakland and petersburg where the temperatures are dropping into the lower 60s for most of us we'll stay close to the mid and upper 60s for overnight low, but things will be proving so let's get through this yellow alert day for today. we'll move on to a very nice day tomorrow with sunshine breaking out in the afternoon,
6:21 am
thursday absolutely beautiful, low humidity, temperatures in the lower 80s and a very nice finish to the week for friday and even going into the weekend for saturday as well. angela? >> thank you, olga. we continue to follow this accident southbound bw parkway has quickly turned into a parking lot. our delays will start prior to the beltway and the crash as we mentioned again is at the bw parkway and 450, three cars involved and this is a personal injury accident, so it's going to be there for quite some time. traffic is squeezing by in one lane, but very slowly as we mentioned. now a lot of folks already have taken 50 as an alternate. that's not a good idea for you. let's get a live view of traffic. 50 is dealing with accident location eastbound 202 on the approach to 50. as you can see here in bound 50 we are jamming up as you make the drive toward that accident scene which is also blocking a couple of lanes. so it's going to be a tough drive getting through riverdale this morning. now again, do not try to get on
6:22 am
201. that's not going to be a good alternate for you either. well maybe 201 but if you try to take 410 to 50 what's going to happen is the inbound lanes will be jammed as we get another live look at 50 at 201, showing you those delays this is 50 at 410 i should say showing you those delays inbound the crash blocking two lanes eastbound 202 at 50. the other serious accident southbound bw parkway at 450, so plan accordingly if you have to travel in those areas, otherwise we are looking pretty good as you travel around the beltway no major problems on the north side starting to see a little bit of backing from new hampshire avenue over toga go avenue and also slowing as you approach the lane divide on southbound i270. guys back to you. it's almost back-to-school time but some families won't be able to get their kids all the school supplies they need. so wusa 9 has tecread give joy operation backpacks to get

yellow alert means it's going to be inconvenient weather as we approach the afternoon. it's already raining in someplaces but as this continues will it be measured indiana . or just a headache for the day? >> i think most of us will get a spattering of rain. the problem with this system as it comes through is there will be pockets of heavy cells and in those areas where we have short intense downpours that's where we have the potential for flooding and some very very inconvenient conditions for most of us as you step out this morning. we're looking at doppler 9,000 all morning long and so far the
6:46 am
steady its heaviest rain has remained north of the area but we expect that to shift as we head to mid morning and early afternoon seeing opportunity for some more widespread showers and zooming in doppler just a little bit close so you can see we had a break and now another band is coming through so light rain as you're heading out and about and a very unsteady pocket of rain in the yellow zone there, beginning to be a little heavy around route 50 heading out toward the buoy area crossing the beltway. things will be a little gloomy and damp. you can see visibility is down although we see the washington monument from our michael and son cam view is definitely going to be an overcast type of day. the yellow alert sticks all day long into the overnight as showers and storms won't taper off until after midnight and we'll definitely see the opportunity for some warming temperatures as we push toward 80 degrees. so the morning commute is going to be wet and messy, the evening commute might be a little bit more tricky as we have more heavier downpours expected to roll on through
6:47 am
between the 5:00 and 7:00 hour. overall though it's going to take awhile for the system to work its way through. our temperatures have been sitting in the lower 70s all morning long, temperatures not a lot of variation from zone to zone and now that's because of the cloud cover keeping things mainly uniform. the satellite and radar shows just how large the system is and again it's the pops of heavier rain through pittsburgh up toward portions of central pennsylvania but for us down here in the southern regions we can expect to see our pop of moisture round about noon time. it is here showing on our future cast hour by hour forecast heavy rain down toward pax river, del marva, and then we'll see a little bit of a lull, break in the cloud cover and sunshine into the afternoon mitching in but then bands moving on through late in the day at 5:30-6:00, heavier pockets of rain even by that midnight hour. going to take awhile but we will clear out overnight and even see some sunshine as you head out and about early on
6:48 am
your wednesday morning. so todays forecast below average, only about 80 degrees from regan national down toward orange, virginia and portions of southern virginia, southern viewing area. tonight is going to be still a muggy night. we're waiting on the wind shift. right now our winds are southeasterly and we'll slowly shift those to the north and west overnight bringing in cooler air, less humidity and makes things much more comfortable. for tomorrow we'll have the opportunity to warm up a little more, middle 80s so if we're getting closer by tomorrow afternoon things will improve when we get into that wednesday and thursday forecast so for the short-term yellow alert for our tuesday, wednesday looks not too bad we start out with clouds in the morning breaking out with sunshine in the afternoon and thursday absolutely delightful. thursday forecast will feature temperatures in the lower 80s, low humidity and the sunshine continues into friday and saturday. the pick of the weekend day is going to be your saturday because we start to build in
